The Saracens Enjoying The Table Tennis Table We Supplied
Table tennis is a great game for all ages and athletic abilities. Our
customers range from pre-schoolers to world-class professional athletes.
We were delighted to supply a table tennis table to Saracens Rugby Club
The players at Saracens enjoy the game to wind down after a gruelling days
training, but always display their competitive nature at the table. They
were kind enough to send us the video below.
Saracens is a club steeped in History. Dating back to the 18th Century,
they’ve enjoyed huge success through the ages.

We’d like to wish Saracens a successful season and thank them for
Never Too Young to Start!
This clip was filmed at Woolwell Table Tennis Club and shows 18 month old
Jamie playing multi-ball (which is a repetitive practice technique) with his
father Kevin. They have been “playing” table tennis together
since Jamie was just 6 months old. Kevin originally made the video to send
to his partner’s family, but it has now become a huge YouTube hit,
which to date has had over 1.5 million views. Table tennis certainly runs in
the family. Kevin’s partner Marketa is a former champion from the
Czech Republic and his older son is also showing great promise. We wish them
all good luck with their training and hope the children enjoy a long and
happy playing career.

10-year-old son Evan playing on his new Kettler Stockholm. As you can see

We hope you keep improving and that you continue to get lots of fun from the

years of fun & friendly competition. Thank you for sharing this picture with
Braehead Clan Ice Hockey Team Also Love Table Tennis
Braehead Clan Ice Hockey Team have recently purchased a Gallant Knight Academy
19 table tennis table from us for their players to use. Table tennis is a
fantastic way to improve reactions, balance and hand-eye co-ordination. It's
extremely popular with professional sportsman and women from a vast array of
disciplines. The player below is Derek Roehl who joined the team in July 2014.
The Braehead Clan are Glasgow's only professional ice hockey club and they
compete in the Rapid Solicitors Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL), which is the
UK's premier ice hockey league. The Clan play out of the 4,000 seater Braehead
Arena. It's a superb entertainment venue in a stunning location on the banks
of the River Clyde. The club are also highly involved with the local
community, helping promote the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle.
We're so pleased that table tennis has become a part of both their training
and their relaxation time, as it has with so many other sporting teams. It's
also worth noting that at the time writing this the Clan are sitting pretty at
the top of the Elite League! Years ago the Superstar footballer Gareth Bale
purchased table from us and soon after he hit the big time and became one of
the world's best.....just saying!

Sprowston Senior Citizens Table Tennis Club
Inspired by the film ‘Ping Pong’, Sprowston Senior Citizens group started
their table tennis club in 2013. The aim of the film ‘Ping Pong’ was to
encourage and promote active ageing using table tennis. The sport is an ideal
way to maintain a healthy body healthy, mind happy and to stay socially
When they first started they had to use small tables that were already at the
venue, putting them together to make different sized tables. They also had
access to a ¾ sized table tennis table which had to be brought to the venue
each week! The group were awarded £500 from Active Norfolk and used the money
to purchase some new Gallant Knight Academy table tennis tables, as well as
bats, balls and nets.
Sessions are every Tuesday between 10.00am and 11.30am at the Sprowston Senior
Citizens Club, Wroxham Road, NR7 8EN. It costs £2.00 which includes tea and
biscuits. There’s no membership fee required so you can just turn up and pay
and play on the day. Equipment is provided but of course players can bring
their own bat if they wish. You’ll just need suitable footwear.
It is a very friendly group and everyone attending enjoys the opportunity to
play ‘social table tennis’ and have fun. All session includes a break with
plenty of chatting. The emphasis is on fun, keeping active and meeting new
people whilst doing something enjoyable.
Earl Jacotine of Broadland Council with support from Wally Murrell established
the group and continue to enthusiastically run and promote it. Local coach
Mark Dare has attended to provide hints and tips on playing. The club is a
great success story with up to 24 players attending each week. A committee has
been formed within the club, and the future looks very bright.
